My name is Spencer Moore, I am 12 years old and I'm a Boy Scout in Troop 26 of Tulsa. Recently I read an article about fluoride and the harm it can cause. I was very surprised to find out that fluoride is in lots of things that we consume every day, besides our water that we drink.
Studies have shown that fluoride can cause lots of health problems, like cancer, and can disrupt the immune system. This is just to name a few things. They have also said that fluoride does not stop tooth decay. I contacted Jeff Green, the national director of Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, and he says that it is a huge concern that we do not have labels stating the amount of fluoride that we are consuming in our daily diet.
Have you ever investigated this for Tulsa? Yours in Scouting,
